I don’t know where I’ve been but I somehow missed out that there was a competition going on amongst 280 nominated mayors from around the globe. According to the project, they have no affiliation with any city or organisation and run strictly in a non-commercial capacity.
So what’s the reason for this post? Just as the title says, not only did our mayor of Cape Town, Helen Zille, make the top 11 but she made number 1. But as she said on her interview on KFM this morning, it’s not an honour she can accept alone, as her job cannot be done by one person, it takes a team (her mayoral staff, her family, and us the residents of Cape Town).
